I can relate to all of this and tell you it’s pretty sweet once you get in your forties. I got carded into my 30s. At my first big corporate job out of grad school, when I was 27, the president of the company said, “Are you sure you’re out of high school?” In my late 30s I dated a girl about 10 years younger than me. She actually got mad because she had crows feet and I didn’t. When people ask how old I am, I cringe. Many of them freak out and make a big deal about it. But now that I’m in my early 40s, it’s pretty nice. Last week a woman asked how old I was. I told her and she said, “Oh my God! You are my age. I thought you were about 23.” The other bonus is that studies have found people who look younger are actually younger. They have longer telomeres which are directly related to longevity. The researchers found that biologically you are the age you appear to be.
